In the manipulation of the juice there is
another loss, which for convenience call loss
in manufacture. Present, loss in manufac

is doubtful if many of our mills get this Iosb
even at present down to 7 per cent., but it
can be done. Ten per cent, is probably very
near the average loss. But it is expected
that the new vacuum cleaner will lower this
loss considerably and bring this department
into a state bordering on perfection.
There are quite a number of persons that
think all new inventions are "useless," .par
ticularly if they know very little about them.
And there are others that are wondering if
these improvements will ever come to an end,
or if sugar mills will ever be considered com
plete and perfect. I have my doubts about
it too. In fact, I think it a "forlorn hope"
as far as some of the Kohala mills aro con
cerned. It would take a century to bring
some of th'em into a state of completeness.
Seriously, I think there is some hope for
some of these mills. It is seen that some of
the boiling houses are nearly complete al
ready, but in crushing there is still a consid
erable loss, which will have to be remedied
berore we can boast about them.
In conclusion, I would say I consider no
mill complete that loses 10 to 15 per cent, of
the juice in the trash, or that allows the heat
from the vacuum pan and double effect to be
wasted in the condensers. Neither are mills
complete unless they have a triple effect,
vacuum cleaner, precipitators, and iron filter
presses. Yetejun Obsebvcb.
Hilo, October 19th.
W. C T. U.
AVhon Mr. Booth was in Honolulu last
January one of his lectures, if I remember
correctly, was to be on the subject of pro
hibition. The audience, who filled the ball
of the Y. M. C. A. building, was composed of
some of the best people of Honolulu, many
of whom needed no new arguments to make
them supporters of any measure looking
toward that desirable end, prohibition. Yet
the spealter who made the introductory re
marks before Mr. Booth began his lec
ture said it was impossible for the peo
ple whom this audience represented to
.accomplish prohibition by legislation,
because they had not the voting power.
The great majority of the voters were
natives, who as policemen, soldiers, vol
unteers or as holding office, or hoping to
hold office, were entirely under the domina
tion of the King and his so called Ministers!.
The elected Legislature was nine tenths com
posed of district judges, sheriffs and deputy
sheriffs, tax assessors and tax collectors and
other place men, whose election had been
secured by unscrupulous use of bribery and
power. It was in vain to address arguments
or reasons to such a Legislature, for the
members did not vote according to convic
tion, but upon order. Our constitution con
templated a constitutional, not an arbitrary
government. But we did not have it; it was
nut a representative, but a HiVrepresenta
tive government. The hearty apolause of
the audience confirmed the truth of thes-e
opinions. Bat since the 30th of last June,
another order of things prevails here. We
have now a representative government and
many of the people who composed that audi
ence 1 ist January have c ist their votes for
the nobles and representatives who will com
pose the next Legislature. "Itoforni" has
been the watch-word and rallyiug cry by
which men have been stirred and gatheied to
bring about this new state of affairs. Doubt
less the representatives and nobles elect ire
going into the next' Legislature with tho firm
purpose of currying forward this reform into
such places as they can roach by making
laws. The men who are hearty believers in
the restriction or suppression of the evils of
tho liquor traffic aud opium busiuess have
now a chance to use. their votes to carry their
convictions to a practical issue. Liquor and
opium are the two greatest evils under which
we are suffering; these two traffic greatly
need reforming, and tho lefortu which would
be best for all concerned would be to reform
them cut of existence. Now they flourish at
the expense of better and legitimate busi
ness. In some w ty or at soma p.iiut the evil
influence of the saloon is felt by every busi
ness in the islands, and it is high time now
that good men have tho power that they
should work effectively against so great an
Testimonial Concert.
Ihe Hawaiian Opera House was filled on
Saturday evenma, when the testimonial con
cert was" given t the Misses Joran.
Throughout, the performance gave general
delight, there, being many recalls.
While the musicians to whom the comuli
meut was teudered maintained their deep
hold on the public admiration, local pride
was gratiSed not slightly by the way in which
the resident singers and players did their
In the first number Pauline Joran appear
ed as a pianist, instead of with her Well re
spousive violin. She joined her sister. Lula,
in the duet of the " March Triomphale,'' that
was finely playtd, eliciting applause that
shook the houe.
Lula later g.-ve a piano solo Chopin's
"Scherzo" in tine stvle. P.inline performed
a brace of violin solos, and. on being en
cored, a third that seemed to catch the audi
ence in a softer vein than any hitherto a
sort of lullaby calculated to eootho tho
savage breast, and make the scion of
civilization forget that he owed his subscrip
tion to the Gazette. In the second part the
fair violinist was down for "Hnngirian
Airs," but the gi"ing way of a string left tho
audience hungering for the delightful chords.
Elie, the - little one." gave a very pr. tty
piano solo in the second part, besides sharing
in a quartet where two pianos were used.
Siguor Hoselli. besides a cavatina of Bos
siui. sang a duet with Mr. W. H. Morse
"The Fisherman" the latter being one of
the hits of the evening. The Siguor also
sang in a duet with Miss Austin, aud by re
quest gave -'The White Squall" in the sec
ond Tiart, making decidedly his best effort
of nil.
Mr. Morse, both in the duet just referred
to and in a solo ' Thy Sentinel am I"
more than held the high position he has won
iu the community's estimation as u vocalist.
He was accompanied ably on the piano by
Mr. Myron H. Jones.
Miss Jennie Grieve sang a solo "How
Nearly I was Sleeping" with a purity of
notes and flexibility of voice which evinced
rare talent aud good culture. Her trilling
would not have discredited a prima donna.
Mrs Hauford played the accompaniment with
well-known ability.
Miss Anna Austin, in the duet with Signor
Boselli "Oh, Fairy Wand !" fully sustained
her fine reputation as a singer, retiring amid
a storm of applause.
Probably the finest piece of the evening
was the quartet by voice ( Mrs. J. E. Hau
ford), violin (Pa' line) and two pianos (Lula
andElise), the subject being "Ave Maria."
It was voiced and accompanied to perfection,
filling the house with a volume of the most
delicious harmonies. The audience insisted
on a repetition, that was kindly accorded.
Pauline's bow seemed to evoko more music
in this combination than singly; while
the pianos chimed in with the precision of
electric sympathy.
All that remains to be mentioned, savo the
finale, is Mr.L. Montgomery Mather's Shakes
periau recitation. The elocutionist was
greeted with an ovation, being unable to be
gin until peal afterpeal of applause subsided.
He rendered "Othello's Apology" in a style
of histrionics not to be apologized for round,
modulated, thoughtful and "trippingly on the
tongue." Mr. Mather afterward appeared
before the curtain to convey Mrs. Joran's ac
knowledgments to the Honolulu public for
their warm reception of her children.
Z.The finale was a scene from the second aqt
of " The Mikado," Gilbert & Sullivan's now
world-renowned Japanese comic opera. Sig
nor Boselli was grandly and artistically got
up as Jd Ko, Lord High Executioner ; while
Katisha, Daughter-in-law Elect of the Mi
kado, was personated in striking costume
by Miss Paulino Joran. They performed the
scene and singing with skill and vivacity, so
much so, in addition to the irresistibly funny
nature of the piece, that the last song and
dance had to be repeated before the audi
ence would budge out of that house.

Julian Thomas, "tho Vagabond,"

ture that ''King Tliakombau became
an exemplary Christian after the loss
of his teeth and tho ruin of his diges
tion," and adding the comment, "The
man who could mako such an asser
tion is , utterly unworthy of cre
dence and confidence." Evidence was
given that tho attendances at his
lectures were smaller by degrees and
beautifully less, but the jury could
not bo persuaded that the paragraph
was a contributing cause. They
found a verdict for Mr. Thomas, but
with only a farthing damages, leaving
tho question of costs to be argued.

Solo Survivor of a Whaler.
J. B. Vincent, sole survivor of the wrecked
whaler Napoleon, that called at Honolulu in
1885 on her way to the Bearing Sea, has'
arrived in San 'Francisco. His account of
the Bufferings of the ship's company before
they died is distressing. A good constitu
tion pulled him through and he lived with
the Indians, who buried his comrades and
proved very kind to him. In January of this
year he gave a deer huntsman a me-sage
carved on a piece of wood, with orders to
deliver it to the first whaler sighted. The
billet came into the hands of Captain Crogan
of the Hunter, telling him that J. B. Vin
cent, sole survivor of the Napoleon, was
living about ten miles southwest of Cape
Navarin. The Hunter could not reach the
place on account of the ice, but Captain
Crogan caused a copy of the message to be
given to every whalor. It finally reached the
commander of the exploring steamer Bear,
who at once set out and loscued Vincent.
A New Steamship Lino-
TCapt. J. N. Knowles left Sin Francisco for
New York on the Cth inst., to prepare tho
elegant passenger steamship San Pueblo for
her trip to tho former port. The following
particulars of this addition to the Pacific
Coast merchant marine are from a late San
Francisco paper.
"The City of Pueblo is a ?590-ton vessel
and was built for the West India, trade, in
1882, for Alexander fcSoos. She is an iron
steamer, 330 feet long, 3S feet beam and 25
feet depth of hold. She has seven water
tight compirtments and her compound en
gines are supplied with 43-inch and 8G-iuch
cylinders, with G0-inch stroke. They are of
3000-borse power aud propel the vessel at a
sixteen-knot rate of speed.
"The best time ever made from New York
to Havana was made by the City of Pueblo,
and she will, when added to the Pacific coast
fleet, be the fastest as well as the finest pas
senger steamship out of this port. t
"It is at present impossible to state
'whether the new steamer will be employed
in the coast or in the Sandwich Islands
service; indeed, it is a question whethor the
owners have themselves decided upon this
"The purchasers of tho Pueblo are the
owuers of the Jesse H. Freeman, now in this
port, and have recently contracted with the
Union Iron Works for the construction of
another steamer of 1,000 tons. .
"It is said that these gentlemen will, at an
early day. establish a. line between this port
aud the Sandwich Islands, and that other
large and fast ships will ha added as rapidly
as possible."
"Everybody and his wife jubilant
at the fine weather," is a local noto
in an Auckland paper. Do not talk
to us about tho New Zealand climate
after that !

A Madrid dispatch of September
2Gth says rioting is reported from the
Island of Ponape, in consequence of
the expulsion of Protestant mission

It was further stated that the insurg

two war ships had consequently been
sent to the Caroline Islands.

Edison believes, and for himself
will act according to the belief, that
the whole tendency of invention for

will be directed toward economy in

If so, a steamer that now burns 150

A monster meeting of unemployed
sugar refiners was recently held in
Hyde Park, London, to agitato for
countervailing duties to meet the sys
tera of sugar bounties adopted in
othor countries. It was stated at tho
meeting that 50,000 men formerly en
gaged in sugar refining aro now un

that the cheap sugar England gets
from the bounty paying countries
has caused expansion of many indus
tries in which sugar forms a raw material.

tho pianoforte playing of Joseph
Hofman. Although only ten years
of age, he has as 'big a tono as Ru
benstein or Bulow,' and his expres
sion is simply indescribable. No such
musical phenomenon has been heard
since the days of Mozart." The fore
going from an exchange is interest
ing in connection with tho presonco
in Honolulu of little Elise Joran, who
played tho pianoforte in public with
great acceptance at almost as tender
an age as tho young London mu
The purchase by Jay Gould of tho
Baltimore & Ohio telegraph system,
hitherto with its cable connections an
effectual buffer against monopoly,
has caused leading journals of the
United States to seriously discuss
Government toleOTaphs, u boon pos
sessed by tho people of Great Brit-
am. While tho idea in its logical"
outcome seems to tend toward social
ism, it may be asked why tho Govern
ment should not transmit the peo
plo's telegraph messages as well as
their letters. And, if those, then why
not their merchandise and thoir per
sons? Where, indeed, is tho lino to
bo drawn where paternal government
shall cease?
